Did you run "partprobe" or alternatively have you tried a reboot?

Subject: disk partitions on that aren't recognized by mkfs + parted
I successfully made a logical volume out of four disks. I am now
to do the same to another four disks on the same system.
shows a similar result for each of the new four
Disk /dev/sdk1: 2000.3 Gb, 2000398923016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 243201 cylinders
Units cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdk1 1 243201 1953512001 83 Linux
parted sees them as

Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
partition Table: msdos
Number Start End Size Type File system Flags

but mkfs doesn't work
mkfs -t ext3 /dev/sdk1
make2fs 1.39 (29-May-2006)
Could not stat /dev/sdk1 --- No such file or directory
Same results with "mke2fs -j"
cat /proc/partitions shows for the disks that worked:
8 96 1953514584 sdg
8 97 1953512001 sdg1
for the disks that don't work:
8 112 1953514584 sdk
parted is version 1.8.1-27.el5. I have the system completely updated.
I understand that parted is sometimes a problem. Should I download
